Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♈ Aries

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 411 / 1364

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 411 of Meeus index or 1364 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.37 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 55 minutes. It is 5 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 49 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 20 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠8.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠8.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠25.1°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 30 March 2033 at 06:09 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 12 April 2033 at 02:26 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 365 058 km

The Moon is 365 058 km (226 837 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 060 km (252 314 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 11:09 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 14 April 2033 at 11:28 in ♎ Libra.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 23 March 2033 at 08:32 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.613°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.590° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 April 2033 at 20:56 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 14 days

In 14 days on 14 April 2033 at 19:17 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
